Holsworthy is a small, friendly library that is easily accessible and can be found in a central position in the town. The library offers a range of facilities and activities and has a pro-active Friends Group and two adult reading groups, one of which is a walking group which combines a walk with books that have a link to the natural world.

For children, the library offers a monthly book group, fortnightly Bounce and Rhyme sessions, craft activities and stories during the holidays as well as the popular Book Track and Bookstart reading schemes.
